Southern Craft Stove and Tap
I had a reservation at 1:30 and we stood at the hostess spot waiting for probably 20 minutes before we were seated. It took an hour and a half to get our food and it was cold. It took an additional 20 minutes for them to bring my dad's food and it was cold and the wrong order. We were there around 2 hours and 15 minutes for food that was so cold it was almost not edible
Service was great, food delicious!
Made a reservation and was told due to walk in traffic that a table was not available for 30 - 45 minutes, even though there was a confirmed email from Open Table staring the correct time and party size. Our party arrived 5 minutes before the resi time. The restaurant said that FGL he reservation was not “accepted” by the restaurant so it could not be honored. Load of crap.
Fortunately, our server (Cori) was fabulous and helped us at least enjoy dinner. We had family in town trying the restaurant for the first time, and based on this experience, we will probably not choose it again for a party larger than 4 people.
Loved it all. Great evening.
We had a nice experience here. The food was average. Pork tenderloin sandwich and sweet potatoes fries. Enjoyed the sandwich. Hubby had the lump crab salad, he really enjoyed it. Lots of crab, could of used a little more greens, but the dressing with it was wonderful. He wasn’t impressed by the with the gumbo. He has had better.
But overall we would go back to try some other things on menu. Pizza looked really good and they say they have gluten free crust. But wasn’t in mood to try this trip
Cool spot. Good lighting. Good food. Good drinks. Nice aesthetics.
Their salmon was to die for! My daughter had a burger and fries it was awesome! Can't wait to come back in June with my whole family!
We never visit Ole Miss without stopping at Southern Craft! Menu, food and service are always top shelf...
A nice birthday dinner after the football game
Booked for group and expected a nice atmosphere but was stuck down a hallway in a small room with family small kids and just not a fun experience. Food was marginal at best.
Our food was great and we were seated quickly for our reservation. Even with a football game weekend traffic, all went smoothly on a very busy night.
The food and service were wonderful. I am looking forward to a return trip.
Really good food!
We had a reservation for 8:45 and were never told that the Kitchen was closing at 9. Instead, our waitress continuously asked to take our order and we declined, saying we would like to order after we have enjoyed our appetizers that we ordered when we sat down. This man who seemed to be in some management position then came to our table and sternly told us that we needed to "figure out what we were ordering right now" and that he was sending his waitress back to us immediately after to take our order. Food came out quickly after but was mediocre. Totally understand how crazy a Saturday during football season can be, but there is no excuse for the attitude we received from management.
Food was great, service was good. Will definitely go back. I do want to add that we ate there at night and the lighting was very bright. I would prefer the lighting be turned down a bit. They also sat us by the door to the patio ( I assume there were heaters out there because people were sitting outside) so every few minutes, the door would open and about froze us to death. Other than that, was a very pleasant experience.
Already have. Loved the menu, Service. We ate there 2 times this past weekend. Once with a large group they gave us private room. Second time went back for Brunch before heading to airport and we sat outside and we had our small dog with us.
We booked a family birthday lunch, with an Alzheimer's patient, during an Ole Miss football game. A recipe for disaster, right? The downside: We waited two hours for our meal. The upside: The wait staff were very caring with our Alzheimers guest and brought him free slices of leftover pizza while we were waiting, then ice cream while we were still waiting. Our order (for a table of eight) was separated, and the chef came out, apologized, and comped the delayed dishes. My only constructive comment is that our waitress could have been more proactive, letting us know what was going on, offering pizza before we asked for something, checking in more often.... It seemed as though she was afraid and hiding out, versus trying to make lemonade from lemons. I would have appreciated more frequent updates, versus seeing her folding napkins while we were in the second hour of waiting for lunch.
I've taken my parents to Southern Craft before and had a good experience, so I'm chalking this up to a football weekend. I really appreciate the staff's response to our mini-crisis, and we'll certainly give the restaurant another try.
We had reservations for 8:30 pm and had to wait for a table. I should have known right then that it was not going to be a good experience. There was no leadership at the front and two girls were trying their best to manage customers who were waiting. We were a group of 6 and we were asked if we would take a booth with chairs on the end or wait. We said we would wait. At the same time I said we we would wait they have a table for 6 to a group of customers with only three in their party (they arrived after us as well). After we were seated outside, it took about 15 minutes for someone to come and give us menus and take our drink orders. The water cane in about 10 minutes but our drinks took 25 minutes. One person in our party ordered an appetizer and it arrived about 5 minutes after that but with no plates to eat or share! The plates came in about another 10 minutes and I asked the kid who brought them if he could take our order which he could not. Our server came out later - took our order and then we waited and waited and waited. Finally, our second round of appetizers showed up followed by a pizza that was the exact pizza I ordered and we were told that management se it out to us because of the long wait. I suspect that only a portion of our order was placed and they did not realize it until the pizza came out. An hour and half (plus or minus 5 minutes) we received our food. No apology from restaurant management. The restaurant was almost empty by now.
Extremely disappointed. Oxford has lots of restaurant choices and this place will not make it here if they don’t have leadership present and ensuring that customers are being seated promptly and that they are happy with the food and service.
The pimento cheese sandwich was excellent and definitely worth returning for. Our server Tatum made the night memorable.
Took my son and his college friends out to dinner. Great times!
Very slow service. Took forever to get a server to start with, ordered drinks and meals at the same time; the pizza arrived before the drinks. How does that happen.
This was a great find! We were a party of 10 visiting Oxford for a football weekend. Southern Craft was the perfect spot to finish our day. There was something on the menu for everyone and it was all delicious! The staff was well trained and very accommodating. Southern hospitality at its best! I only wish we lived closer so we could visit regularly.
This place is a Hidden Gem. Service was excellent. The manager even came out and greeted us. We were a party of 10 and they were also willing to take a reservation where many would not. Hard to find , but worth it!!!
Street taco yams double dip very good!
Wonderful meal with my daughter
Dined here for my Mom’s Birthday. As expected the food was fantastic. The service was incredible. The experience is always top notch.
Loved finding this spot on a Friday game weekend. It was nice to get great food away from the craziness of the Square. The only issue was that our entrees didn’t all come out at the same time. Big delay between when my husband and I got ours and our son got his! Other than that it was an awesome experience and we will definitely return the next time we are in Oxford!
First time and did not disappoint. Much more casual than I had assumed but that was just fine. Great bourbon menu, make sure you ask for it.
Service left a lot to be desired. No one bused table wen we were done eating and we had to ask to run our credit cards after waiting 20 minutes for our server to come get them.....
Excellent food with amazing service. Will return anytime we are in the area.
Worst meal I have ever eaten. Terrible service. Cold appetizers. To be fair, the crab cake was good, but ice cold.Entrees were inedible because of too much cayenne pepper. The menu looked so promising, but we won’t be back. Management did not make us pay for our meal, as they obviously were having both wait staff and kitchen problems. We have never complained about food before to management.
Hope the word gets out and this new place stays open! Great food, great atmosphere.
Terrible service. Took forever for drinks to arrive. We watched our food sit for 15 min at the counter for our waitress to pick up. My meal was lukewarm when I got it. Mac and cheese was phenomenal. Street tacos were not good at all. Even thought our waitress suggested the, Waitress disappeared for most of our meal. Couldn't even find a manager to complain to. Saving grace, rest of the groups meal was still good even though it sat for 15 min. Prices were decent.
Awesome staff; I don’t know the going man’s name who was our waiter, but he was very gracious and patient with 13 women. Ambiance perfect for our birthday party...food was wonderful.... thank you for providing a perfect setting for us:))?
We were traveling thru and stopped here. It was clean and the food was very good. Wait staff was friendly and attentive.
Would recommend as a place for drinks, happy hour type get together. The food was just okay.
Great find! Our food was fabulous! Wish they had one or two breakfast items during brunch.
A very large group went for graduation dinner . We couldn’t have been more pleased with the food , service , and ambiance . Serving a large group isn’t easy but they did it superbly! The menu is varied and yummy !! The only downside is that since my daughter has graduated ... I’m not sure when we’ll be able to get back :( !!
Awesome food, and owner is very hands-on!
The food was great. It was a great place to have lunch after my son graduated from college.
